As I sat around yesterday all inspired by the naked sight over the whole Øresund from a hill-top on the shoreline in Humlebæk, writing the foreword and constructing a table of contents for my book, I came to realise one very important thing.
It is still “The Book About Everything”(and nothing at the same time), but it in effect has as much to do with “The World As I See It”, as with “The World As I‘d Like To See It”. Thus a title like the former or the later isn’t accurate enough. In effect, even in the foreword I devote myself to writing a timeless book, that has to do with the past, present and the future, and thus I need a timeless title for it.
Well, so I guess I’ll keep on working on it, but I’ll keep the title of my blog as is for now, as I guess it is an acurate enough description of my blog 🙂
Anyways, for those interested, here’s a rough overview of the chapters, overall flow and a few notes about the book that I made yesterday:
Chapter 1. Rule Number One
- Examples of the stupid things you believed in as kid, ignored and so on.
- Describe the way the brain works – making predictions about everything.
- Historical examples of mistakes and everchanging social beliefs
- Modern examples in branding, politics and the media effect
- The only thing I’ve ever learned for sure throughout my short life:
- There is no absolute absolute truth but the fact that there is no absolute truth
Chapter 2. Singles, Groups & Relationships
- Examples of how groups limit understanding, both for information, politics and many other areas of life
- Follow this chapter by -> there is no absolute way to organise information, information should never be put under a structural lock down – to be sure that doesn’t happen information CANNOT be put under a lock-down -> all information must thus be at our disposal at all times whenever we need it, but only if we need it.
- Nationality, seperation and so on, humans like information must be related, not categorized.
- Categorization is racism
- Democracy on a local scale, but anarchy on a higher scale
- Create and break relationships as they are discovered -> the court does this as criminals commit crimes against the grain
Chapter 3. True vs. False
- wanting information for the wrong purposes should be illigal, not the act of actually taking it, becuase there might be a justifiable reason for that. -> therefore the domstol should aim to proove a man guilty or not guilty towards the law, but rather logically right or logically false, based on only rule number one.
Chapter 4. Punishment & Education
- education instead of imprisonment
Chapter 5. Citizenship for Perfection
- promote education, thought and creative ideas, demand those for a man to become a part of the society, if they fail to live within this society, they must be reeducated, forced to produce something usefull for the society again. perhaps a points system for failure/success.
- promote thus a thinking a society, and ever developing, and ever-perfectioning society
Chapter 6. Religion & Perfection
- I feel like I must include God in the discussion, even if I believe in his existance being statistically improbable
- perfectionism the only thing God could have intended us to do as he delibarately made us imperfect, so we must strive throughout our lives to become perfect, and depending on that we get into heaven or hell. Good deeds that help the society -> perfectionise the society, bad deeds do the opposite.
Chapter 7. Summerization?
